Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

11 June – 24 July 2015

Balcombe Parish Council is delighted to announce the start of the public consultation on the draft Balcombe Neighbourhood Plan.  The Plan is critical to developments in the Parish until 2031. It will be a significant and powerful document in protecting the village and guarding against unwanted non-sustainable developments.

The Draft Neighbourhood Plan and Sustainability Appraisal plus other supporting documents, are available on the Neighbourhood Planning title in the Menu Bar.   Hard copies are available to view in the Half Moon Pub in the centre of the village.

The consultation will run from Thursday 11 June until midnight on Friday 24 July.   In addition to drop in sessions at Bramble Hall on Thursday 25 June (between 6 – 9.00 pm) and Sunday 28 June (between 2 – 4.00 pm), members of the community are invited to send comments in writing to Balcombe Parish Council by email to parish.clerk@btconnect.com  or by post to Parish Clerk, Gleddoch House, Stockcroft Road, Balcombe, West Sussex RH17 6LG.

Please note comments may be made public.

Parking on London Road

The Parish Council has been informed by the police that cars parking on the London Road have been keyed, had their tyres let down and notes have been placed on their windshields.   All of this is unlawful and if the police were to catch the person responsible they would be dealt with robustly.    Vehicles are not breaking any laws parking on London Road: furthermore there are benefits as parked cars act as natural traffic calming and will reduce the speeds of the vehicles travelling through the village as they have to stop to give way to oncoming traffic.    If anyone has any genuine concerns please follow the proper channels and contact the police, rather than commit criminal offences.
